We will be offering two sessions for swim lessons this summer. All classes are on weekdays. Sign-up for the first session will begin by June 5th and can be done through our app with “Wild Apricot for Members” at that time. An e-mail blast will come out by June 3 letting you know when the registration window will be open. Each child is offered one session of lessons at no cost. If the child is enrolled in one or more of the remaining sessions, a fee of $10 per child is charged for each session. This fee is payable by the first day of the session for which it applies. Swim Class Levels will be limited to an average of ten (10) swimmers and will be approximately thirty (30) minutes long. Classes will be scheduled for two (2) daily sessions, 10:30 a.m. and 11:15 a.m. with levels 4 - 6 in the 10:30 time slot (right after swim team practice) and levels 1 - 3 in the 11:15 time slot. In order to make the classes effective by reducing distractions, we ask that unsupervised children who are not participating in class leave the premises until their class starts or the Club opens for the day.
Swim Lessons Schedule
All six levels will be offered daily, subject to availability of instructors and enrollment. Every effort will be made to accommodate everyone. Due to the need to limit class size, please show consideration to others by enrolling only those children who are sure they can attend faithfully. Depending upon enrollment, classes may be cancelled or combined.

The six Learn-to-Swim levels and the objectives for each level include:
